Madden 20 players, the time has come to show off your skills—on a national stage, for a chance at winning part of a $10,000 prize pool.
USA Today Sports has launched a free Madden 20 bracket-style tournament open to amateur players, with a chance to collect some of the $10,000 prize pool. As part of its partnership with Super League Gaming, which operates an amateur gaming content and community platform, USA Today Sports’ bracket tourney will allow thousands of players of all skill levels to show off their Madden 20 prowess beginning July 6, all from the comforts of their own home and Xbox One console.
“Whether you’re a casual player or trying to climb the ranks to be one of the best, our Open format gives you a shot,” explained Matt Edelman, Super League’s Chief Commercial Officer. “It’s great to be able to bring players together during this isolating time when it’s not as easy for people to meet up at one person’s house for a round of games on a weekend afternoon.”
The competition begins Monday, July 6th. Super League will host, monitor, and manage the Tournament’s gameplay, while USA TODAY Sports and For The Win will provide complete coverage of the Tournament and updates to the bracket. Both companies also will be showcasing exciting highlights across their social media channels.
Players can submit game highlights, too, with a chance to be featured on USA Today Sports and For The Win.
The best part? Registration for the tournament is simple and free!
Here’s how it works:
Players who are 13 years of age or older can register for the tournament—if you’re under 17, you’ll need a parent or legal guardian to sign this consent form for the prizing.
After registering, players will be matched automatically for the opening round, which will be from July 6 to July 26. Like major tournaments, you’ll be separated by conferences—North, East, South, or West—where you’ll play Best of Three matches in a 64-person group.
The best of the best from each conference (two contestants) will move onto the playoffs on August 1, where the eight players will compete to determine a Final Four—all while enjoying the national attention from USA Today Sports’ coverage of the event.
Then, on August 2…a chance at Madden 20 Glory (and cash!). The top four players will compete in the Finals Bracket and the pool of $10,000, with the first-place champ pocketing $1,500.
And the bragging rights? Priceless.
Registration is open now—good luck!
